Another Zane Grey Western Whirlwind
Gary Cooper and Thelma Todd
A stirring tale of the days when rustlers roamed the cattle country and
two-gunmen fought the law, in a land where men ride fast, where they
shoot straight, where thrills are everywhere. If it's a Zane Grey-Para-mount,
it's the best of the, west. And NEVADA is just that!
